Renee Horton, PhD
Main Main Renee Horton, PhD Dr Renee Horton is now the Lead Metallics and Weld Engineer for NASA's Space Launch System at the Michoud Assembly Facility working on NASA's Journey to Mars. Despite a hearing impairment, Dr. Horton went back to school after getting married and having 3 children to ultimately earn a PhD in Material Science with a concentration in Physics. She became the first African American to earn a PhD in materials science at the University of Alabama. In addition to overseeing a crucial aspect to NASA's Journey to Mars, Renee has a long list of accolades including the NASA Space Flight Awareness Award, three separate Group Achievement NASA Awards, and the Black Engineer of the Year Trailblazer Award. She also served on the organizing committee for the International Conference on Women in Physics that was held in South Africa. Growing up, Renee had a hearing impairment that went undiagnosed until she was 17 years old. She was actually classified remedial in elementary school. She went through speech therapy then the therapist recommended her to be tested for the gifted program. Dr. Horton had always dreamed of being an astronaut. But at 18, during her first time in college, she went for her medical exam with the [US] Air Force. She was disqualified from NASA's astronaut program because of her hearing impairment. Her hearing became such an obstacle that she decided to drop out of college. Renee made the decision to instead, focus on starting a family. However, after her third child, she realized that she needed to return to college to pursue a passion that she had since she was young - science. She attended Louisiana State University to finish her Electrical Engineering bachelors degree and then continued on to the University of Alabama where she ultimately obtained a PhD in Material Science with a concentration in Physics. Dr. Horton now has a major role in building the rocket that will take astronauts to Mars. Dr. Horton said, "If I can't be an astronaut, I'd like to be able to send one to space." _Dr. Renee Horton _Dr. Renee Horton Dr. Renee Horton Dr. Renee Horton Dr. Renee Horton Dr. Renee Horton NASA Women's History Month Profile - Renee Horton (Michoud Assembly Facility) Renee Horton, PhD
